    Office:
    Room 153, 60, Clayton Campus
    Research Interests:
    I am working on a project investigating the use of vegetation to remove nitrogen from stormwater in biofilters. The project aims to identify characteristics of plants favourable to nitrogen removal and use the outcome to guide species selection in biofilters. The removal performance of plants from Victoria and Western Australia are being investigated using a large-scale column experiment. Nitrogen processes will be investigated using isotopic techniques and the project aims to identify interactions between the vegetation, biofilter design and nitrogen removal.
